FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(GAINESVILLE, GA – 06/21/12) M3 Hotel Accounting’s key product users gathered recently at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida for the company’s 2012 M3 Partners’ Meeting. The 3-day conference, which was presented free of charge to attendees, provided M3 users with the opportunity to network and gain valuable insight in the use of M3’s software and best practices in accounting.

The expanding range of products that M3 continues to develop and offer their customers influenced the theme of this year’s meeting, Room to Grow. In-depth breakout sessions provided users with the opportunity to grow their knowledge of software functionality, like ad-hoc financial reporting, PMS interfacing directly into the accounting system and to participate in an in-depth Q&A on all of M3’s products. Attendees also got a first-hand look at products in development, including ACH and Accounts Receivable, as well as a behind the scenes tour of the most state-of-the-art hospitality business intelligence reporting tool in the industry today, M3 Link.

Randy Meyer, Principal and Chief Financial Officer of The Hotel Group Holdings, LLC (thehotelgroup.com) sees great value in holding an annual M3 product users forum. “The Partners’ Meeting provides an incredible opportunity to network and share ideas with the principals of M3, as well as a large group of ‘power users’ who know all of the intricacies of the software,” Meyer explained. “M3 is a software company created by hoteliers. It has and continues to be very customer-centric, with minds open to suggestions from its subscriber base.”

While participants of the 2012 Partners’ Meeting found value in networking, M3’s leadership and technology teams also realized the benefit of having direct feedback and input from their customers for improving and enhancing their products. Since the debut of M3’s hotel accounting software in the early 1990’s, the company has taken pride in working closely with end-users to continuously improve its cloud-based softwares, including AccKnowledge, the company’s flagship accounting platform; M3 Link, a highly sophisticated operations reporting, business intelligence and analytics solution; Payroll services; and Document Imaging.
